thanks RollWave for this edit.Ive never watched this show before but was always interested after the fact.Just like i didnt find out about breaking bad and how great it was untill the 3rd season.This edit has a little of my favorite kind of shows all wrapped up into one great edit.Shows like 24,Homeland,Veep.I have to say editing wise it was great,smooth.Having not seen the show before and knowing you mixed some seasons together i couldn't tell the difference.I also believe you must have mixed in some music in yourself and it fit really good.The video effects and titles were done great as well,you have some good skills my friend.I hope to see more from you soon in the fanedit world.
PS i had the jackal in my head all night
This is an absolutely wonderful fanedit. Highly recommended for West Wing fans or lovers of political drama.
The editing here is solid all the way through. If I hadn’t read the cutlist after I would have never known how many episodes were combined. Hell I had to read Wikipedia to really understand how much work was done. This edit flows so smoothly one scene to the next. Bravo.
Commercial break transitions were handled nicely; I didn’t notice any on-screen credits or zoomed shots to remove them. DVD quality was good, matched the source quality.
I had small nitpicks with some of the audio editing. They were really minor so I’m not going to waste time talking about them. You may or may not notice; they may or may not bother you; your mileage may vary.
The narrative structure is the strongest part of this edit. I have never watched a single episode of The West Wing but I’d always wanted to check it out. (And yes I purchased the source material.)
You can go in completely blind deaf and dumb and still be able to follow everything. I connected to the characters and once the plot kicked into high gear I was glued to my screen. The three act structure is done very well and this feels like something that was intended as a theatrical movie.
And this show is really good. They weren’t kidding when they said they had great writers. Powerhouse storytelling, acting, everything.
